The Congressional and national debate on immigration reform is ongoing. This panel will discuss what comprehensive reform should encompass from the perspective of employment.
The panelists will discuss:
- Current problems in the system that are making it so difficult for employers to obtain work visas for foreign nationals and keep their enterprises operating on U.S. soil at maximum capacity
- The problems low-skilled workers face in trying to remain in the United States
- The hardships and abuse these foreign workers face
The panelists will also explore what enforcement mechanisms need to be in place to successfully effectuate immigration reform.
